may leave those lines as they do in canada because they cannot survive the line. that is what i can see happening. >> i think we need to think outside the box. we don't do that and nothing government. in my personal of view, i think the federal government may well be in the wrong business with regard to health care. one of the things we need to have a discussion and debate about is what level of universal coverage is appropriate, affordable, and sustainable over time. in my view, that is preventative wellness and catastrophic protection with an option to obtain more if you want. i think we need to think about how we can end up moving toward a system that is more appropriate, affordable, and sustainable while maintaining competition and the ultimate delivery to the private sector because right now the system we have now, we have made more promises than we will be able to deliver on. that is the simple truth. >> you see a lot of projections of future medicaid and medicare costs. it seems there should be a largererror bar because you know the formula. you don't know how medical technol

look at canada, united kingdom, australia, for example. they set up a scoring point system that reward people for being able to contribute to the host country. now, i have long said that the immigration policy in the united states of america should be designed to enhance the economic, social and cultural well-being of the united states. that should be actually the policy of any sovereign nation in the world, should establish an immigration policy for the purposes of enhancing the economic, social and cultural well-being that have particular sovereign state. in this case, it's the united states of america. we should also understand that one of the essential pillars of american exceptionalism is the rule of law. if we have contempt for the rule of law, if we have some of the highest profile people in america openly speak about hiring illegals to take care of their home and at the same time advocate for the dream act which is amnesty for a specific class of people, we regard -- reward for illegal behavior, a magnet for bringing more children into the united states that are here illegally,

prevent people from running for office. it is unheard of in great britain or canada for any party to ever think about changing the law to keep its competition off the bell. and the britain anyone can get on about -- to keep them off the ballot in this country. in canada but it only takes 100 signatures. it does not occur to people in most countries that is legitimate for two parties to get together and keep competition off the ballot. host: for those who tried to keep the parties off the ballots, what is the main reasoning? guest: it depends on whether they are talking honestly or not. if you want an example of an honest comment, i was at a georgia state legislative hearing once and a legislator on the elections committee said, i don't want no damn libertarian running against me. i appreciated that. when the law came before judges, the judges will not say something like that. they constantly tell us we are in danger of overcrowded ballots that will cause the utter confusion. the truth is, we suffer from under-crowded ballots. i have been tracking state legislative candidacies for 20
